Toradol injection may be given either into a muscle or vein for the short-term management of moderate to severe acute pain.
Doctors prescribe Toradol IM for short-term use (no more than two days) in the hospital for pain relief after major abdominal, orthopaedic and gynaecological operative procedures.
Toradol contains the generic ingredient ketorolac, which is a type of medicine called a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Toradol works by reducing the production of certain chemicals in your body, which cause pain and swelling.
The usual dose of Toradol IM is 10mg to 30mg taken by injection, every four to six hours as needed to control pain. Doses exceeding 120mg per day are not recommended. The usual maximum duration of treatment is two days. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully because taking too much Toradol may lead to unintended and possibly dangerous side effects.
These may not be all the side effects of Toradol Injection 10mg/mL.
Do not take Toradol if you have bleeding in the brain or other bleeding disorders, severe, uncontrolled heart failure, Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, high potassium in the blood or liver or kidney disease.
Discuss your medical history with your doctor, especially if you have kidney disease, urine problems, previous bleeding in the brain, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or bleeding from the stomach or gut. Let your doctor know if you are taking any other medications (prescription or non-prescription) such as acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) or other NSAIDs, antacids, antidepressants, blood pressure medications, blood thinners, corticosteroids, diuretics, lithium or morphine.
Keep this medication out of reach of children. Protect from light. Store at room temperature.
Acute pain may be defined as being related to injury and that gets better after healing. Acute pain often responds to treatment with analgesic medications. The duration is generally short, less than three months. The reasons for the pain can be attributed to trauma, surgery or acute medical conditions. The duration of severe pain after surgery tends to be relatively short and the need for pain relievers usually decreases considerably 48 to 60 hours after the operation. Pain is very subjective so different people will feel different levels of pain. Post-surgical pain control requires balancing benefits and risks. If your pain medications are too strong, you may have side effects, such as sleepiness, nausea or vomiting. If pain medications are too weak, you may experience unnecessary pain, which may hinder your recovery process.
